This postcard was sent to us from Russia. It was sent by Alexandr, who lives in the city of Orel, 3474 kilometers away!
Alexandr is a great traveller (he tells us in the back that he has been to Spain, and includes some Spanish words). The picture on the card is a pop-art like rendition of different stills with Yuri Gagarin, the famous cosmonaut and first man in space.
The back of the card is also very colourful, with different coloured inks. Alexandr likes Spain so much that he decided to make 'something special' for us. It includes stickers, Spanish phrases and lovely stamps, too, with the Patriarch Tikhon and two of the most famous kremlins (fortified old towns) of Russia: the one in Moscow and the one in Kazan.
